The Tavistock Cup was conceived in 2004 as a celebration of the local rivalry of two of the most exclusive golf communities on the planet. Isleworth Golf and Country Club is home to Tiger Woods, Mark O’Meara, Stuart Appleby, Darren Clarke and Paula Creamer, among others, while Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, Ian Poulter and Annika Sorenstam are among those who live at Lake Nona. 

The 2010 Tavistock Cup takes place at Isleworth Golf & Country Club March 22 and 23, 2010. It´s sanctioned by The PGA Tour and broadcast by The Golf Channel in the US, billed as The World Golf and Country Club Championships.

If you ever felt that a sleeve of balls was scant reward for winning Nearest To The Pin at your local Golf Society day, then you might want to avert your eyes from the prizes on offer at The Tavistock Cup. 

- $1million for the winning team, with a further $1million given to the charities nominated by the winning team.

- $500,000 to the losing team.       

- $100,000 split between the winning team in the Longest Drive competition on both the ninth and 15th holes.       

- $300,000 for the best performing player and winner of the Payne Stewart Salver Award, $150,000 and $100,000 for second and third place respectively.       

- $50,000 for the winner of each Closest to the Pin challenge on the 4th, 6th, 13th and 17th holes.     

- $50,000 Eagle Skins Purse divided by the total number of eagles and then distributed to the players.        

- Air Nautique boats, Marquis Jet Cards, Omega watches and Audi A5 Sports Coupes as hole-in-one prizes. 

Tickets for the contest are available by invitation-only and the galleries are able to follow the action without being restricted by boundary ropes. The big question this year is will Tiger Woods make his comeback to competitive golf in this relatively low-key event. We´ll just have to to wait and see...
